We had a good day at the hotel, and he was a summary: The hotel location is really ideal downtown and closer to restaurants, café, shopping and touristic locations. The rooms are clean and basic. we stayed first night in king bedroom which had 3 stairs to access washroom and was on the second floor so we heard the noise coming from restaurants downstairs. We talked to the customer service, and they kindly changed our room in the second night and upgraded us to meet in the third floor, which was very nice, had no stairs and quiet . Service was great and staff are friendly. Complementary breakfast with a simple pastry, tea, and coffee machine . However, there is no kettle to boil water for the tea so you can’t make tea technically. However the breakfast room is nice and has good internet if you wanna do some work using your laptop. Prices are affordable for the area. I recommend staying in the hotel mainly third floor suites.

Lovely hotel. Basics, but that all you need. Restaurant right beside it was 5 star. Then there is a cafe outside of the hotel which has very healthy options, I got a smoothie in a bowl. Hotel, room was more than adequate, large wardrobe and bathroom. Very clean. Mini fridge in room. Everything was comfortable. Room did not have a comfortable chair to sit in only a desk chair and the bed. There were 2 steps down to the room from the bathroom, I didn't like that for accessibility reasons. ( I have a cane) In room coffee maker but no services in the lobby. A tea coffee or hot wat are in the lobby would have bumped up my experience . Overall great locations, easy access, rent a bicycle across the street. Friendly staff. Two thumbs up.
